Where does CTT deliver?

Where is CTT located?

CTT is located in Lisbon, Portugal. It's one of the biggest postal companies in Europe.

What are the negatives of using CTT tracking?

There is a possibility of delays. When you track CTT shipments, you will see the status as “on way” for some time, and then – all of a sudden – it may change to “delivered” with no notification about the reason why. This can be frustrating and worrying if there was something valuable inside or wrapped into that package. Moreover, those packages often get lost completely - especially those sent from China to Africa (especially Nigeria).

What shipping services does CTT offer?

CTT offer next services: 

  • International Express Mail Service (EMS)
  • Global Postal Parcels - Small Packet Plus service.
  • Registered Airmail service for small package up to two kilograms or four liters volume. 

One of the most popular options is EMS services, which are known as "express mail" in almost every country around the world and considered as one of the fastest ways to send an average-sized letter, but also abroad with delivery times from a few days up to several weeks depending on destination. Delivery time is guaranteed by couriers if sent using the registered airmail option unless stated otherwise when sending your shipment online through the CTT web application.

CTT offers a possibility to send packages through registered airmail service for small package up to two kilograms or four liters volume if you don't want your parcel trackable by couriers. This is a very interesting option when sending valuable items since they will not appear on the courier's system and cannot be traced during shipment.

What are CTT international shipping costs and how long do they take to deliver?

Most of the time, CTT international shipping costs and how long they take to deliver depending on several factors: what you're sending (i.e., its weight), where it's going, and which service you choose among International Express or Standard Post delivery methods. 

That is why CTT advises our customers to always check the price per kilo to get an idea about both sender’s fee and recipient’s duty fees for each shipment - this way you can make sure your budget matches with pricing when scheduling your shipment! 

They say that when no obstacles are getting into the destination country, parcels sent via International Express usually arrive within 48 hours after they were shipped; however, if customs procedures are involved, then this shipment may take up to 30 days. International Standard Post delivery method gives you an opportunity for your parcel to be delivered in the shortest time possible - that is 15-30 working days (depending on customs clearance) after it has been shipped.

Is Correios de Portugal expensive?

There are several shipping options to choose from, all of which have different prices based on your location and the weight of your package(s). You can review CTT's website for a complete overview of available shipping methods and their respective costs before checking out.

About Portugal Post (Portugal CTT)

CTT - Correios de Portugal, S.A. (Portuguese for CTT - Post of Portugal) is a Portuguese business that runs as both the national postal service of Portugal and a business group with subsidiaries running in banking, e-commerce, and other postal services. Founded in 1520 by King Manuel I of Portugal, during the Portuguese Renaissance, CTT is the oldest company still in operation in Portugal.

The acronym CTT comes from the company's previous name (Portuguese: Correios, Telégrafos e Telefones, indicating "Post, Telegraph and Telephone"), which was also the designation of postal services for the previous Portuguese Colonies and still for CTT - Post of Macau nowadays.

CTT has actually become a public restricted company in 1991, and in December 2013 the shares were listed on Euronext Lisbon.

In 2007, CTT started to offer cellphone service in Portugal, under the brand name Phone-ix. Phone-ix was closed down on 1 January 2019.

CTT was privatized in 2014, in order for the Portuguese government to raise cash and comply with the European Union requirements for its bailout. In the previous year, 70% of the CTT shares had actually currently been alienated.


  • 1520: King Manuel I creates the public mail service of Portugal, the Correio Público - Public Post Office.
  • 1533: the very first postal service policy in Portugal.
